pests to access so please leave these at home
- Carry food in sealed, rodent proof plastic containers and take your rubbish home
- Check your footwear is clean and that there is no soil or seeds in laces or treads
- Leave your bicycle at home and if you're bringing a buggy, make sure your tyre treads
aren't packed with dirt or insects

permitted as they may endanger the island's wildlife, particularly shore birds.
